About the Diocesan MDG Task Force

Page history last edited by Trisha Thorme 9 years, 8 months ago

Mission Statement

 

     Our mission is to create a Diocesan-wide movement to promote awareness of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and to work with congregations to develop plans for their achievement.  The Task Force’s focus on people facing extreme poverty throughout the world is based on our baptismal covenant “to strive for justice and peace among all people.” 

 

Here is a brochure about the Task Force.
